PODCAST: Fall Makeup is Completely Different This Year. Shine is Out, Matte is In, and Lips are Luscious. Makeup Artist Elke von Freudenberg Lays Out the Fall Beauty Blueprint. FASHIONTRIBES BEAUTY BLOG & PODCAST - mP3 File

"This is the first time in years when fall makeup is completely different than summer," explains Elke von Freudenberg, celeb makeup artist & the beauty blogger behind The Beauty Newsletter. "Summer was all about bronzer and lipgloss, while for fall, everything is different from eyes, to lips, to cheeks & skin. They are all matte, especially skin. But not like in the Kevyn Aucoin days of foundation with powder and more powder. Now It's matte, but not flat." She also loves the new smokey eye rendered not in the standard black, but in softer, more flattering grey tones.

According to Elke, put away anything that contributes to shine or dewiness, and go for the more refined toned-down shine. "Matte skin gives an elegant, refined look from head-to-toe, and if your skin isn't matte, your look won't work."

Elke von Freudenberg's Picks for fab fall makeup:

  • Elke_jane_eyeshadow Grey Eyeshadow "The big eyeshadow color is a light, soft blueish grey. It was everywhere on the runways. Except now, instead of lots of color on the lid, it's about a neutral bone color on the lid, with the grey in the crease and around the eye." Eyepencils have been retired for the time being: "You don't notice them as they're thin and smudgy." (Jane Eyezing available at Drugstore.com)
  • Elke_blush Dusty Pink Blush with Nude Lips Shimmery blush is out-out-out, and dusty pink with grey undertones gives the cheek du jour, along with a barely-there lip. The secret to avoiding corpse lips is to choose colors that are on the lilac side, but not too grey. (Rimmel - Drugstore.com)
  • Elke_gloss Cherry Red Lips "Especially if they're dark & glossy, with black eyepencil & mascara." Good options come from  MAC and Estee Lauder High Gloss. (EsteeLauder.com)
  • Elke_ww_bronzer Contour  Yes, that 80s staple is back. "Put away apple cheeks, and apply a honey brown color under cheek and focus on bringing out bone structure." Wet 'n Wild makes a great, cost-effective bronzer that works perfect for contour for almost all skin tones. Choose the medium shade. (Walgreens.com)
